Frost Crystal is a resource.


Frost Crystal (Fc) is a resource and one of the Harvested Agricultural Substance flora elements.

Game description[]

A beautiful blue crystal, this organic compound possesses both great hardiness and a shimmering translucence. It is harvested from the leaves of Frostwort.

Frostwort requires frozen conditions to thrive in the wild, but can be farmed in all environments with the aid of a Hydroponics Tray.

This element can be harvested from wild plants, but requires the use of Haz-Mat Gauntlet.

With assistance from a Farmer, Frost Crystals can also be grown as a product of the Frostwort plant, providing a base yield of 50 with a harvest time of approximately 60 minutes.

Frost Crystal can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • SUBSTANCE.PLANT.SNOW.png Frost Crystal x1  +  SUBSTANCE.BIOME.COLD.png Dioxite x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.SNOW.png Frost Crystal x2  ("Organic Expansion", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.BIOME.COLD.png Dioxite x2  +  SUBSTANCE.AIR.1.png Oxygen x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.SNOW.png Frost Crystal x1  ("Encourage Growth", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.BIOME.COLD.png Dioxite x1  +  GAS.2.png Radon x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.SNOW.png Frost Crystal x1  ("Encourage Growth", 0.6 sec./unit output)
